design drawing

Above is a drawing screen captured from Martin Manning's BG 101 5.1 Excel program, with text added in Illustrator. Actually, I made some slight modifications to the text after measuring my frame parts (most of which arrived from Ceeway late last week), which aren't reflected in the drawing. The main difference is that the head tube is a bit longer, as the estimated crown height was a little too long. Also the dropouts I have are rather long horizontals, while the ones Martin measured must have been shorter.
My main concerns at this point are regarding steering. I'm worried that wheel flop may be a problem because of the combination of short 80 mm stem, 52 mm fork rake, and shallow 71.5° HT angle.
I'm working on a decal set, to be produced by CyclArt.
